Advanced Surgery Elective

Each spring, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University enrolls fourth-year veterinary candidates in a strategic, high-volume spay/neuter service. This service is designed to spay and neuter a large number of animals and to enhance the surgical skills of the students. The Luke and Lily Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic accepts shelter dogs and cats from shelter or rescue organizations with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. To qualify and animal must:

    • Have no serious underlying disease
    • Be free of heart murmurs
    • Be between three months and ten years of age

Please contact the Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic for scheduling information and further questions.
